How about Michele Obama? Biden-Obama, now that’s a winning ticket! Let rally this to convince Michele to take one for the country.

Worse than being self righteous, you are self indulgent, and not nearly as funny as you want to believe you are.

I can appreciate that Tara Reade does not make the perfect victim and that parts of her past can be argued to discredit her story. But to outright dismiss the allegations against Biden especially when taking into consideration his well documented history of inappropriate behaviour towards women...Read full review »

Virginia Heffernan is intelligent, funny and comfortable in her own skin. I appreciate her interview style. She has a wide knowledge base and connects with guests with meaningful meandering. Her dialogue with guests delivers rich history, sometimes a different perspective, little known asides...Read full review »

Even as Virginia gives voice to the collective national nightmare, she never forgets to remind us that there are lives at stake in all of this. The guests are universally sharp and Virginia knows them and their work. It’s a much-needed tonic that balances catharsis and education to brilliant effect.

Can’t say that it’s worthwhile anymore as there are better sources for day old news on the tRUMP nightmare. Also resent the new two tier, pay or piss off attempt to reimagine the genre. Love Virginia but ...

I love Virginia’s wit, her intelligence, her way with words, and her ability to convey the horror of our current situation while still offering hope. This is the one podcast I never miss.
jackiesshrink via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/11/20
I used to think the show was C- minus on a good day. There are much much better left podcast out there believe me. But after hearing the Bernie smearing episode that’s was completely gross and disingenuous I lost completely interest in the show. The show is most likely targeted for democratic...Read full review »

This podcast really makes you realize how lucky we are to have Trump these people are sick can’t wait for trumps reelection and it’s going to be glorious

That is really cool. Well done. And of course I’m being sarcastic.

Hi
I’m surprised you keep a paywall up for Covid episodes. Some people can’t pay.
Pammy slammer via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 04/01/20
Deleted show after 6 mos. No matter what the topic- Virginia makes it all about herself. Reality check here- who’s calling Trump on his narcissism?
Heffsick via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/28/20
This is the show I skip all other shows for.
eightyanthony via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/23/20
I listen to one podcast and this host not only tried to hide the crimes of Hillary Clinton by saying all she did was use an improper server, when we all know the real crimes, she interviews a guy who joined a cult called “the moonies” the fact you get loonies on this show to bash Trump just...Read full review »

I signed up to hear about Trump, yet one show on two is about anything but Trump.
sol et goblet via Apple Podcasts · Canada · 03/16/20
I enjoy Heffernan’s intelligence and her guests, but her “center-left”, which in today’s climate is the right, is unhelpful. She is ignoring Biden’s dozens of flaws.
VessFrye via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/11/20
Bring back Jacob Weisberg. Virginia Heffernan has lost it with divisive rants against the progressive left.
dekosoft via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/06/20
This used to be great. Now it seems like more vitriol angst instead of in-depth discussion. I had to un-follow VH on Twitter. Her tweets were popping up too much, and I’m sorry girl, I don’t share your political views. It started to feel like i was getting beaten over the head with E Warren...Read full review »

Took a break from trumpcast, came back recently. Just Not funny anymore. It’s totally hostile.

CDC
My question exactly!! The EPA page is no longer reliable (Trump has truly made us a nation of fake govt websites!) so why would CDC?I like the suggestion of looking at European CDC.

VH - the host - is great
Thomas Ford via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/20
Heffernan’s the epitome of the centrism that’s going to get us killed, or at least those of us not in her privileged class.
Hzjsuzqiue via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/04/20
In recent episodes, Virginia Heffernan has expressed contempt for Bernie Sanders’ status as the Democratic frontrunner, off-handedly insinuating an equivalency between leftward and rightward expansion of the Overton Window. If this show is now an outlet for evangelical capitalism—count me out.
davebelais via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 03/01/20
When this show first started I enjoyed Jacob Weinberg as a host. However, he is no longer there and Virginia Heffernan has fully revealed a status quo, neo-con POV. Socially liberal, unbearingly smug, overloading her spiel w pop culture references - the final straw was her anti- Bernie tirade on...Read full review »

I’m an Ivy grad and selectively use big words, but come on Virginia...I’m already impressed by your knowledge and interviewing skills. No need to have a Merriam-Webster close by. Also, why the Bernie bashing? I’m not thrilled with him either. He’s a liberal Trump...won’t listen to anyone, is...Read full review »

Smart and insightful. Love the deep dive into RW motivation to hang onto Trump. Human frailty on display.
MissEssie via Apple Podcasts · Australia · 02/27/20
Why have a preview of something we cannot hear without becoming a Slate member? There is something cruel about this dangling. Better just don’t offer that show at all EXCEPT to Slate members.
natandmart via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/20
Excellent show. I look forward to it. What I loathe is the constant hawking & teasing of joining Slate. It’s so obnoxious and annoying that I am never EVER going to join Slate. There are a zillion excellent podcasts and this tease just makes me more determined to enjoy them elsewhere &...Read full review »

Very disappointed with this podcast. I’ve loved so many episodes, but your coverage of Bernie Sanders is way off the objective charts. I hope you get some balance on the future episodes.
SampsonSilto via Apple Podcasts · Finland · 02/27/20
... didn’t really appreciate the paranoid character assassination of Bernie Sanders. Funny how a show that styles itself as progressive really is far from it. And I’m not a Bernie Bro because I know how they can be. I even enthusiastically voted for Hillary Clinton.
Crumbs Krause via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/27/20
I’ve been a listener since this show began, but am now stopping. I currently read and listen to other journalists who have criticism of Bernie, but the consistency of the current host’s buoyant animosity towards his candidacy, and the lack of (in my memory) her having on pro-Bernie guests so that...Read full review »

I had been enjoying this podcast for months . Then comes the ugly anti Bernie slant. Really??
Taintedmeat via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/20
This is an awful hateful podcast. It’s so sad to see grown adults be so mean spirited & calculating just because they lost the Presidency. Grow up get over it & stop inundating podcasts with this garbage. No thanks. You still have another 41/2 years.
ilooovebubbly via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/25/20
Trumps chance of being president is more possible then ever and we have to stop it fast before our future is with trump.
Kingredwolf10 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 02/22/20
What’s this twisted American brain fart that socialism is to be grouped in with super negative ideologies like fascism or communism. It’s 2020, either learn what socialism actually is or stop talkings about it. Greetings from Amsterdam.
Gastje84 via Apple Podcasts · Netherlands · 02/22/20
Was enjoying this for a while but the host seems to have a very specific chip on her shoulder about evangelical Christianity and it’s getting old. Probably going to unsubscribe.

I so loathe Trump that I’m willing to put up with a lot while seeking new information. I give Heffernan credit for being fairly early in interviewing the authors of The Unmaking of the Presidency, and she’s showed similar good news sense on other occasions. But it is a measure of my absorption in...Read full review »

Always intriguing guests, brought to life by Virginia’s scintillating brilliance and wit. Never repetitive or boring, always insightful. Bonus comic improvisations and the world’s greatest Trump impressionist. Dizzyingly inspiring.

Love love Virginia. She’s so smart & funny!
juliahollyberry via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/20
Kind of a fun idea but poorly executed. Detracts from valid criticism of those in power by worshipping the system outside of trump.
David Commins via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/25/20
Virginia has the nerve to compare Bernie to Trump.
jefferyuniverse via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 01/24/20
Was so glad I found I could get this podcast through Slate Daily feed, because I couldn't stand that caricature showing up in my feed. I listen to this to deal with this mess, not be triggered by that face or voice.Read full review »
